I am now beginning to understand the line of the story now.  I'm a Pern fan so I get all the references and I do remember Ruth going back in time and saying "I always know When I am" or something like that.

GOOD or continuing character development.


Now, Mawgrim, please get some adminstrative assistance to put your story in order and as unfinished.  Your posting a new chapter every few days, so that's kudos plus and you have a great story. 

    It is however more difficult to follow the storyline.  I finally figured out to follow the post date.


Thanks again for a good story.


Response from the author:

Thanks for your comments. I'm still learning how to use this site to post stories, but I think I've now managed to compile them together into a series so that they can be read in the correct order.

I will be posting a longer story set in the same timeline shortly.

Really like this chapter in the series; will be glad when some of the longer stories start.  The riders and others have learned not only that they jumped in time to allow the dragons to age without fighting thread to soon; but that Lessa has made a huge jump in time and brought the riders from the four abandoned weyrs forward to help as well.  A great addition to this budding saga.

This is the last of three short stories that lead into Gone Away, Gone Ahead.  It is a great transition between the Southern Experiment, the integration of the new dragon riders from there, and the introduction of the 5 Missing Weyrs from the past.  H'rek is searching for a true love and not that there are so many new riders and dragons maybe he will get his wish.  Mawgrim continues to entertain with his great writing in the Pern Universe.

    You probably have a crazy and hectic schedule and find it hard to keep up with everything going on.  We get it, because we feel it too.  Signing up here is a great way to keep in touch and find something relaxing to read when you get a few moments to spare.
